This family is defined by the conical leather tube of lead shot which comprises the core, and the lack of a rigid handle. Although, with plaited bellies, they can vie with bullwhips and stockwhips it is at the shorter, narrower end of the range where these whips predominate.
Four feet long plus fall and cracker giving a reach of about six-and-a-half feet, in an easily coiled and carried whip. Both 16-strand overlays. £245.
Quite a specific snake, traditionally with the cracker plaited into the point but here with a small lash-loop permitting easy replacement of the cracker. 16-strand overlay with a fine, 6-strand point. £235.
